Last week, DC Comics announced their plan to release reprints of various volume 1 entries in their archives line at a reduced cover price ($19.95US instead of $49.95US) in an attempt to hook people on the cheap ones and get them to buy later volumes at full price. The first such archive was just solicited in the issue of Previews that ships next week. It’s Batman Archives Vol. 1, page 78, item number MAR03 0186. Expect a review when it ships; a 300 page full colour volume starting with Batman’s first appearance is hard to resist at that price.
